Christian Pulisic probably didn’t get any good sleep on Thursday night after he missed a golden opportunity against Leicester City during Premier League action. Wednesday’s sitter was the latest in a worryingly growing Pulisic miss compilation.
In the span of a year, Pulisic has had a high number of misses from close range. Here’s the full Pulisic miss compilation that spans from May 2021 through May 2022. We’ll start with Thursday’s missed chance.

This one is definitely the most brutal on the list.

A tight angle, but you would expect him to find the back of the net on this one.

These weren't the easiest of chances but in such a big game he'll have wished he did better with these two.

Maybe Pulisic just isn’t lethal from point-blank range. Perhaps he’s a long distance kind of guy.

This one was offside anyway so therefore it doesn’t count, right?

He was so close to becoming the first American to score in a Champions League final. Pulisic probably thinks about this miss the most.
